Montgomery Bell State Park, Burns, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here Sunday October 7th through Tuesday October 9th. Campground was almost full capacity due to fall break for kids. There were park employees always close by working on something. The rest rooms/showers were cleaned twice everyday we were there. Even with all the families there, there was never a issue with noise before or after quite time. When we checked in on late Sunday afternoon there was 3 people in the check in station. The camp road is a little tight for some larger rigs but not impossible. There is also a great play area for kids. We camped creek side and listening to the water running over the rocks was very relaxing. Also had lots of fun catching very small bass and blue gill in the creek. Lots of deer, squirrels and other wildlife running around We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Dickson is 6 miles to the West and has tons of restaurants, Walmart, Lowe's, tractor supply and a Chappels grocery store. It's a very nice store. White Bluff is 3 miles to the east. It has a Chappel grocery store and a McDonald's. If you like Greek food, Gus's gyros in Dickson is awesome.

Crowley's Ridge State Park, Paragould, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is small, only 35 sites total. 17 tent sites and 18 camper sites. We stayed in site 10. It is almost right across the street from the bathroom shower house. This building IS NOT air conditioned. The sewer line stopped up and backed up Friday night and filled the floor with sewage. Maintenance worked on it then called roto rooter to fix it. The maintenance man said the clay pipe lines were installed in the 50's and were deteriorating badly. But I can't blame it all on them though. Because some of the stuff that people flushed should have never been flushed. Idiots! Most of the sites are pretty level. I only had to use a 2x6 under one side to level. Site 8 was sloping to the back of the drive. Site 9 was down a steep hill and not much room for a camper of any size. But tents used it while we were there but water and mud ran though this site bad and the electric box is on the wrong side. The park was very clean, hardly any litter. Trash cans are everywhere. They are constantly mowing and weed-eating. The park employees are very friendly and helpful. The swim lake had 3 lifeguards in swimming area. Site 1 is pull-through the rest are back in. If you have a trailer longer than 22 ft. you might want to call before booking. The hiking trails are very good. If your into geocaching there is one on one of the trails neat find. Lots of wildlife running around too. Paragould is about 12 miles away and there is Lowes, Walmart and Hays grocery stores there plus tons of restaurants, fast and sit down. Most sites are pretty shady, but not all. I will stay here again. We camped at Crowley's Ridge State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Paragould is 12 miles away. There are antique stores, and lots of other shopping too. Jonesboro is about 18 miles away and has even more stuff than Paragould. Just watch the signs to the park and Highway 168 because they are right where you need to turn and not before. Roads in park are a little narrow.

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Spencer, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The campground loops were very clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. There was always someone mowing, weed eating and cutting up fallen trees. There was deer everywhere so be careful when driving around. We had a couple does that wandered through our site everyday. The views from all the lookout positions are great. The only bad thing I can say is about the bath house in loop E where stayed. It was shut down in February to be remodeled. At the end of September it was still locked down and not much done to it. So we had to use the bath house in loop A. It was about a 1/4 mile walk but wasn't a deal breaker for us. They are renovating some of the other loops by adding sewer and some 50 amp services. When I go back I will stay in loop E or A again. The camp store has lots of groceries if you forgot anything. The prices are not inflated either. The gift shop was nice. The roads in the loops are narrow. And there are some lay hanging limbs. If you can come in from the south side. The road from the north steep and very curvy. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to bring everything you need. Because you are a good 35-45 minute drive from any decent size store. Camp store has almost anything you need and not too bad priced either.

Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground, Tiptonville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here 9/10-9/11. The lady in the check in office was very friendly and helpful. The park ranger drove through a couple times and waved. The campground was less than 25% occupancy. It was very quite even with a half dozen pre/early teens a couple spots down. There are several signs that say" alcoholic beverages strictly prohibited". Being right on the lake mosquitos can be a problem. I never had a problem with them but the guy across the street and the camper in the next slot fought them like crazy. The bathrooms and showers were clean but there some dead bugs/mosquitos on the sink area. The bathrooms/shower area was a little dated but the water was HOT, shower head worked with good pressure. No complaints here about them. The grass was mowed everything looked weed-eated, not round-upped. I did not see any trash on the ground anywhere. The dumpster areas were even clean of trash laying around. The water pressure at the sites were very good. I looked at 7-8 other spots and the electrical boxes I checked all had 50,30 and 20 amp hook ups. Pretty shady campground cypress trees everywhere. Lots of the sites are short so pay carefull attention when booking them on thier site. Number 9 is short but nice view of the lake. I live 25 miles away from this place but I will definitely go back. We camped at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Several good restaurants close by from right next door to 5 miles away. Some of them have gift shops. There is a flea market about 4 miles down the road every weekend. And you can rent boats near by if you want to fish on the lake. There is a museum down the road that's pretty good and they have injured Eagles, Hawks and owls that you can look at pretty close up.

Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA, Dover, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the Persimmon loop lot #229. This is one of the few lots that has sewer hook up. We really like this site because it was very close to the restroom/showers. Very easy to back into with our crew cab truck and 18 foot pop up. The drawback to the site is that it is in full sun from 11am to around 5pm. So our pop up was like a oven in the 97 degree heat til the sun went behind the trees. But the reservation site did say this site had little shade. This is a large camp ground but everyone we meet and talked to was very friendly. The camp store was nicely stocked and not too bad on their prices. The closest store is about 10 miles away. The staff here were great. They were very friendly and courteous and always smiling. There is always a staff member patrolling the area on their golf cart. The swim area and beach was clean. There is some cruising by campers on the main road in park but that stops at quiet time. We camped at Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA in a Tent Trailer.

Columbus-Belmont State Park, Columbus, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

My wife and I purchased our first tent camper last weekend. So we went here for our first outing with our new to us camper. The camping was very clean. Grass was mowed. There were virtually no limbs or sticks from the 100+ trees in the camping area. Almost every site has trees on it except a couple that has river views. The restroom/shower room was very clean and had hot water. They do sell firewood and ice here and they have a snack bar in the park itself that sells ice cream, hamburgers and other snacks. The down side is the nearest store is about 12 miles away. The nearest town of any size the has restaurants is about 30-35 miles away. This park fills up quick on the weekends even though it is kind of the beaten path. But there is not a lot people driving though the campground looking. It has a nice play area for younger kids. We camped at Columbus-Belmont State Park in a Tent Trailer.
